Cyprus Airways becomes member of IATA

Cyprus Airways announced on Monday that it has become member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which represents more than 280 airlines around the world.

A press release says that in July 2018, Cyprus Airways successfully completed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) registration, a pre-requisite for an IATA membership, after an audit program that certified the company´s compliance with internationally approved aviation safety standards.

“We are extremely proud to join the international community of IATA in just 16 months of operations. The membership will enable Cyprus Airways to collaborate with other international member airlines for codeshared and interline agreements, and provide a seamless travel experience through an extended global network to travellers to and from Cyprus” Natalia Popova, Chief Commercial Officer of Cyprus Airways said.

Cyprus Airways launched flights in June 2017 and connects Cyprus with 10 destinations in Europe, Russia and the Middle East.
